Sep 24, 2017

Join us this Sunday (9-24) evening for Dances with the Winds, op. 69, by Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara and the Symphony No. 6 by English composer Robert Simpson.  Music from the past 50 years - Sunday night at 11.

Ross Amico is joined by soprano Dolores Ferraro and arts writer Tom DiNardo, as they remember Philadelphia composer Romeo Cascarino, who would have been 95 years-old on Thursday.  The broadcast will include rare audio from the family archives, as well as studio recordings made by JoAnn Falletta and Sol Schoenbach, former principal bassoonist of the Philadelphia Orchestra.  Tune in this Sunday night at 10 pm.

Baritone William Warfield (1920-2002) combined a wonderful voice and the gift of song with a great range of style. This week he sings a variety of songs and arias showing that range, including an aria from Handel's Messiah, songs by Robert Schumann,  Jerome Kern's Ol' Man River, and the complete set of Copland's Old American Songs.

This week's Sounds Choral presents the debut of James Jordan, professor at Westminster Choir College at Rider University, as one of the new hosts for Sounds Choral. Jordan will present a series of interviews with noted choral conductors from this past summer's Choral Institute at Oxford.

It's the music of 15th century Flemish composer Alexander Agricola on this week's Distant Mirror.  Agricola's music is rarely performed today because of its difficulty and eccentricity, but Paul van Nevel has long been a champion of  lost causes and has arranged mass movements of Agricola's into a musical quilt which he calls the Missa Guzzzabuglio (which translates as "mishmash" mass).  Van Nevel directs the Huelgas Ensemble.

The Classical Network in Concert this Friday (9/22) at 8 pm presents another IRIS Wired, The Classical Network’s bi-monthly series of concerts of the IRIS Orchestra. This week’s broadcast focuses on symphonic firsts by Mozart, Mendelssohn, Beethoven and Arnold Schoenberg, and an IRIS commission – the premiere performance of American composer Jonathan Leshnoff’s Symphony No. 1 “Forgotten Chants and Refrains.” 

Shana tova!  To coincide with the Jewish High Holy Days, the focus will be on movies and television series inspired by the Jewish experience.  Join Ross Amico for music from “Exodus” (Ernest Gold), “Avalon” (Randy Newman), “Holocaust” (Morton Gould), and “Heritage:  Civilization and the Jews” (John Duffy), this Friday at 6 pm.
